5:31 pm
dejesus, michelle knight. their smiles frozen in time. no one knowing they were in a house of horrors in cleveland. now tonight two months after their escape we are setting every word, every smile, every clue about how they survived, and alex perez takes us through that tape right now. >> reporter: ever since the day police sformd through that door, the three women kept in prison behind it have kept silent. michelle knight, 20 years old when she disappeared -- 32 today -- was held captive the longest. gina dejesus, just 14 when she was kidnapped, now 23 years old. and amanda berry, vanished at 16 -- today she is 27. >> i want everyone to know how happy i am to be home with my family, my friends. it has been unbelievable. >> reporter: berry was the one who squeezed through the front door, screamed for help and frantically called 911. >> i've been kidnapped and missing for ten years and i'm here, i'm free now. >> reporter: she had been raped
5:32 pm
repeatedly, allegedly by this man, ariel castro, her 6-year-old daughter jocelyn born inside that house. >> i'm getting stronger each day and having my privacy has helped immensely. >> reporter: gina dejesus was often kept in chains in the basement. we saw her thumb's up the day of her release. in the video she appeared with her parents, her lawyer prompting her to speak. >> if you could say something to each and every person out there who contributed money to help you, what would you say to them? >> i would say thank you for support. >> reporter: since her release she's making one dream come true, learning how to drive. >> i may have been through hell and back, but i am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face and with my head held high. >> reporter: michelle knight may have suffered the most. investigators say she became pregnant five times in captivity and was beaten until she miscarried. upon her release she stayed with
5:33 pm
gina dejesus and her family. >> walking hand in hand with my best friend, i will not let the situation define who i am. i will define the situation. i'm looking forward to my brand new life. thank you. >> reporter: diane, as you can see that house here on seymour street now boarded and fenced up. the women were being recognized on the street. their attorney says that's one of the reasons they decided to come forward, to thank their supporters. that fund that was created for them has already raised more than $1 million. >> alex perez, thank you so much. now we turn to that other story of terror and survival, asiana flight 214 and the crash landing in san francisco. tonight the four pilots who were in the cockpit flying the plane have talked to investigators, and abc's david muir is in san francisco with the latest word at this moment once again, david. >> reporter: diane, good evening to you. we have learned from the ntsb
5:34 pm
after interviewing those pilots that not only was the pilot in training trying to land a 777 here in san francisco for the first time, the pilot who was training him was serving as an instructor for the first time. we've also learned tonight something else. when that plane crash landed and the tail came off the back, two flight attendants were sucked out of the plane, ejected onto the runway. they survived it. all of this tonight as we get a clearer view from the cockpit of what it's like to land one of those massive jets over the san francisco bay. tonight as the pilot in training is questioned by the ntsb a rare view from inside the cockpit of what it's like to land over the bay at san francisco's airport. seen in a video posted on youtube by a klm airlines pilot, you can see through the cockpit window the ascent over the bay, the angle for a safe landing on a clear blue day much like the one we saw over the weekend when pilots are cleared for a visual approach. so many questions about asiana airlines flight 214. inside the cockpit the pilot in
5:35 pm
training sitting in the left seat, the captain training him on the right. we know that the pilot being trained had logged just 43 hours on the 777. he had flown into san francisco before but this was his first time landing the 777 before. the pilot next to him had 3,220 hours flying a 777, 33 landings in san francisco. investigators want to know what did the pilot with more experience advise the trainee to >> this was his first trip as an instructor pilot. this was the first time that he and the flying pilot that he was instructing had flown together. >> reporter: late today the ceo of asiana airlines arriving in san francisco, overwhelmed by
5:36 pm
the cameras, turning back, leaving the airport through a side entrance. tonight more survivors from that crash landing going home. so many of their injuries mirroring one another, this man and his collar bone. >> my collar bone is fractured. >> wearing a neck brace, motioning side to side what she felt on the plane. dr. david spain said he saw so many of the same kind of injuries. >> we saw a lot of what we call compression fractures where the spinal column gets compressed. >> reporter: those injuries consistent with movements side to side, the arm rests jamming into passengers' sides, breaking ribs, many passenger's spines stretched and compressed as they went forward and backward, held down only by their lap belts. late this afternoon we heard from members of a martial arts team on that flight back to san francisco. >> the captain was saying, oh, no, we got to get out of here and then, boom, the back end lifted up, really voltd everybody in their seats.
5:37 pm
>> reporter: that boom, that jolt, causing many similar injuries. we've also learned from the ntsb that before that fuselage, the charred wreckage came to a halt just beyond the runway behind me, that it had done a 360 degree spin. the debris field reaching 2,000 feet down the runway. part of the tail that ripped off the jet was found in the bay before the runway starts. diane? >> incredible detail still unfolding. thank you, david muir, once again for bringing us the latest. now we take you into that florida courtroom, george zimmerman on trial for the murder of trayvon martin. the defense almost over, the case almost ready to head to the jury. abc's matt gutman tells us about today's big moments in zimmerman's defense. >> reporter: jurors spent hours today listening to pathologist dr. vincent demaio, dissecting images of zimmerman's bloodied head and face. >> i believe the ems thought he had a fractured nose. >> reporter: the defense parading the blown-up picture for the six jurors to see. >> i think you have six identifiable injuries. >> reporter: still after 11 days of testimony, the defense working to bolster zimmerman's claim of self-defense, outlined
5:38 pm
in this police re-enactment. >> i shot him, and i didn't think i hit him because he sat up and said, oh, you got me, you got it, you got me, you got it, something like that. >> reporter: and working to build his credibility. earlier in the trial another medical examiner testified that martin couldn't have spoken after being shot as zimmerman said he did. demaio says it is possible. >> if i right now, reached across, put my hand through your chest, grabbed your heart and ripped it out, you could stand there and talk to me for ten to 15 seconds. >> reporter: the last witness today, an african-american neighbor testifying she heard zimmerman's voice in these 9/11 calls. >> do you think he's yelling help? >> yes. >> based on the fact that i only heard george's voice and it's a white male voice, i would say that it was his. >> reporter: we have been watching the six female jurors take furious notes for weeks now. now that is tapering off.
5:39 pm
they have even started to decline breaks. analysts tell us their apparent hurry to get through with it means they have likely already made up their minds. diane? >> interesting. thank you, matt gutman. let's bring in "nightline" anchor dan abrams. all these weeks, almost over. take us back to what you think was the turning point so far. >> the testimony of the neighbor and eye witness, john good. he had the best vantage point, the clearest testimony about exactly what happened during that altercation. here was the key moment. >> the person who you now know to be trayvon martin was on top, correct? >> correct. >> he was the one who was raining blows on the person on the bottom, george zimmerman, right? >> that's what it looked like. >> that was key because? >> no matter who started this incident, if george zimmerman was on the bottom and getting pummelled, he can argue self-defense and the prosecution has to disprove it beyond and reasonable doubt.
5:40 pm
you can make an argument that john good, in conjunction with the injuries that george zimmerman had, is reasonable doubt. >> do you think it's going to go the way of the defense? it's over? >> it's almost impossible to think how these jurors could follow the letter of the law, based on the evidence that's been presented, and convict him, either murder or manslaughter. >> manslaughter included? >> absolutely. >> is there another lesser charge below manslaughter? >> it's possible that the judge will allow even lesser charges there and then we'll have to see what the jury would do. but that's to be determined. >> almost over but going really well for the defense? >> absolutely. >> thanks, dan abrams. now an emotional day in arizona, a memorial service for the 19 firefighters, the granite mountain hot shots who died last week. today the lone survivor from the crew who was on lookout that day
5:41 pm
recited the hot shot prepare -- prayer. >> for if this day on the line i should answer death's call, bless my hot shot crew, my family, one and all. thank you, and i miss my brothers. >> 19 boots, 19 empty helmets, one for each of the fallen men. now to pakistan and strange new details about osama bin laden hiding in plain sight there. a report says the terror mastermind did it by going country. he shaved his beard and wore cowboy hats to hide from satellites. he was nearly caught, pulled over for speeding, a bodyguard intervened to settle the matter. he was let go. the report says the failure of pakistani law enforcement was colossal. now the gathering storm in the atlantic. tropical storm chantal, the small caribbean islands taking
5:42 pm
no chances,pulling boats out of the water. hunkering down. it will head to the dominican republic, then puerto rico and then possibly florida this weekend. we want to tell you about a summer surprise on the way for the family driver. gas prices are about to spike, how high how long will it last? linzie janis walks us through it. >> reporter: gas prices are heading higher. the reason, the price at gas stations like this one pay for gasoline has risen by 20 cents a gallon just in the last week. they're getting ready to pass it onto consumers. already the national average of $3.48 is a penny higher than yesterday. prices are going to continue to climb at least for the next couple of weeks. the rise is tied to crude oil prices, spiked by $7 a barrel last month amid unrest in egypt. egypt controls the suez canal, a
5:43 pm
krubl route for transporting oil. if that country were to ascend into a civil war we could potentially see prices to where they peaked in 2008 at $4.11 a gallon. that would mean $40 a month more for most americans to spend on gas. at the very least the u.s. department of energy says prices will remain higher for the rest of the summer averaging $3.63 a gallon. diane? >> thanks for the head's up. still ahead on "world news." after those three young women in cleveland spoke out, we looked into what we have learned about recovery, lessons for everybody on surviving and thriving. that's next. later, are you ready for a surprise? talk about made in america, home grown caviar taking on the world. stay tuned. you won't believe where we found it. years ago, my doctor told me
